Offering a great exercise program that can change lives isn’t very useful if no-one signs up for it, right? We've got you covered.
One of the most important benefits of being a member of the Onero Academy is the inclusion of your business in an interactive map directory linked from Osteoporosis Australia's website so their consumers who live near your practice can find you. A consumer video on OA’s website introduces Onero to over 10,000 unique visitors per month and identifies your practice as an accredited Onero deliverer.
When you complete the Onero Academy training, you will be sent a link to create your profile on the map directory. Your only job is to create it and then maintain your profile with current information so clients can find you. All materials and instructions are included in the course.
Contribution to Research
Join us in our research endeavours into reducing osteoporosis with exercise.
We have included in the Onero Academy training, simple, validated methods to assess your clients to determine if the Onero training is working. While this is not a mandatory element of the License, it is extremely valuable to the greater research project in progress at The Bone Clinic, and your clients will love the feedback.
Your very own database
We have created a very simple process for you to capture data from your clients and 50% of your annual fee will be waived if the data you collect is usable (please see our definition of usable in FAQ). We call this "citizen science". Be part of something bigger than the standard client consult.
